tribe Danthonieae

Pampasgrass Cortaderia selloana

This is a very big, 9 feet tall, clump grass used extensively as an ornamental.  The inflorescence is nearly white, fluffy, up to 14" tall.  The long droopy leaves are semi-evergreen and have very sharp edges.  In some areas, this plant is considered an invasive weed.  Fire will not kill the roots.
